B. Shinberg
Born:
Died:

The only reference to B. Shinberg is in the Leadville City Directory for 1879, when he operated a cigar and tobacco shop at 56 Upper Chestnut Street. [1] It is unknown how long prior to 1879 this business was in operation. Interestingly, the business listing for B. Shinberg, has him identified as B. Shoenberg, [2] and although there are no other resources showing a B. Shoenberg ever having resided in Leadville. It is possible that both of these mentions in the Leadville city directory are mistakenly identified. There is reference to a Moses Shinberg in the 1880 Denver city directory, who also operated as a tobacconist, [3] but this may also could be a mis-identification of Moses Shoenberg, [4] whose family did reside in Leadville during the 1870s and 80s, and are featured throughout the Temple Israel Museum and website.
